Setting up and customizing Sublime Text 2

Can someone please help me set up Sublime Text 2?

The documentation says that code autocomplete should be on by default and it does not work for me. I would like </p> to automatically pop up when I type <p>, but can't figure out how to set it up.

I could use advice on how to pick packages and themes to make it easy for me to setup this text editor to create a basic website. I need a walk through on the selection and installation process.

I believe Treehouse had this in the HTML/CSS Basic Track before the introduction of Workspaces. If this is accurate and the videos are still available, I could really use a pointer. I've wasted 90 minutes trying to get code complete working. It's very frustrating.

A video or video series would be fine.

Hi Mark, it may be that autocomplete is not working because you have't yet defined a file. For instance, index.html, main.css, etc.

Here's some resources to get you started.

Hi Mark,

Maybe this will help Auto-Completion in Sublime Text?
